Academic, scientific or professional interest: This programme relies on a partnership of seven universities and on support by the Erasmus Mundus Programme (European Union). It has also been acknowledged by the MOY (Mediterranean Office for Youth) as a Masters of Excellence. Its aim is to train highly qualified researchers and professionals in Human Resources Management and Development who can improve life quality at work and the organisation of jobs, to make them more humane and productive. These roles are essential in a society that pursues a high level of competitiveness and sustainability through knowledge, and human and social capital. In addition, the free movement of professionals and workers benefits from a high-quality development and management of human resources. Thus, the educational programme is focused on strategic fields and observes current guidelines in Europe in this respect (see ‘Europe 2020’ It follows the reference model and minimum standards of the European Curriculum in Psychology WOP-P, established by the European Network of Work and Organizational Psychologists (ENOP), as well as the main guidelines developed by the EUROPSY model for the European Qualification in Psychology supported by the European Federation of Psychologists’ Associations (EFPA) and for the Advanced Certificate in WOP (EAWOP, European Association of Work and Organizational Psychology). In fact, the reports produced by both EFPA and EAWOP (task force on the Advanced European Certificate in W&O Psychology) consider the WOP-P Masters to be an example of specialised education recommended to W&O Psychologists in Europe
